Taj Mahal - Main Street Ocho Rios
Tel:- (1 876) 974-2414
The Taj Mahal shopping centre is one of several shopping centres on the Main Street in Ocho Rios. The distinguishing feature of the Taj Mahal plaza is a scale replica of the famous Taj Mahal building in Agra, India. The original Taj Mahal is a mausoleum built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, in loving memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. The scale replica in Ocho Rios gives shoppers an idea of what the historic structure looks like whilst not straying too far from the Caribbean Sea.
The plaza is well visited by groups from tour ships and coach tours and has a fairly typical array of souvenir shops, duty free jewellery stores and cafes. Jewellery stores include Bijoux Jewellers, Casa De Oro and House of Diamonds. Souvenir shops include Cigar Planet, Cool Runnings, Harley Davidson and Reggae Jam. There is also an upmarket café (Café express) where you can savour a cup of Blue Mountain coffee and an open-air bar and grill (Reggae Café).© 2014 Jamaica Travel and Culture .com
